CARESCall April 16, 2019: How to survive parole: Learn about successful reentry from an experienced parole agent.

Monday, April 15th, 2019

Is a parole agent in your future? For many people who earn release from prison, a parole agent will be a part of their lives when they get out. Parole agents supervise people who are on parole, assisting them in developing rehabilitative plans. They visit their homes, ensure compliance with parole rules, and monitor people’s lives. If you have a loved one working towards release, knowing what to expect on parole is important.

On our next CARESCall, we welcome CDCR parole agent Maria Mendoza. Agent Mendoza will share how she works closely with the people on her caseload, helping them transition to life outside of prison. She also will explain the elements of an effective parole plan, and provide advice on how you can play a role in your loved ones’ success.

Agent Mendoza will additionally describe how to manage common obstacles returning citizens face, including finding employment, getting dependable transportation, securing housing, and completing education requirements, among others. These issues can be a source of stress for a family, but they can be addressed with careful planning and ongoing support.
